itineraries_photo_10An ornithological holiday in which you will see one of the most fantastic sights in raptor migrations. Thousands of raptors and other bird species often fly and soar across the short crossing from mainland Europe to the continent of Africa each day. Each autumn we have over 600,000 recorded birds passing through what is essentially a funnel at the southern tip of Spain. We have over 80 recorded migratory species of which there are over 190,000 raptors making the journey across to Africa! Raptors, more than any other family of birds, exhibit massive, visible, and far-ranging migrations, while their diversity and abundance in many places are critical indicators of the health of ecosystems.

Our well planned day tours to view points and other locations along the Strait, together with local knowledge from your guides, will ensure that we will see the very best in raptors crossings over the Strait of Gibraltar in beautiful autumnal weather.

Please Note - We live the whole year on The Strait of Gibraltar and have specific local knowledge particularly with the annual migration, location of migrating and resident species as well as the complicated winds and the local weather. We have access to private estates and take time away from areas with birdng traffic, taking you to where the best birds are as well as being in the right place for unparalleled photo opportunities!
This tour does concentrate on raptors although time will be taken, as we travel from location to location, to study the fantastic diversity of other species migration. We always take time to spot and identify butterflies, insects, plants, mammals and amphibians as well. You can get a better idea of what we come across on tour by going to our Strait Nature News Diary which highlights the diverse wildlife on the Strait of Gibraltar.

Of course there’s an awful lot going on with other species migration and we will vary our week's program accordingly, taking in the very best this area of Andalucia has to offer. If winds are not favourable for Raptor crossings to Morocco, we will head for the other rich areas on the coast and to the natural parks, forests and tidal estuaries.
